The accommodation is in a thatched 17 th century farmhouse which is conveniently situated for visiting local attractions in South Somerset, West Dorset and East Devon.

The space
There are 2 large bedrooms with one bathroom between them but if you only require one bedroom, the other one will not be let out while you are here, so in effect bathroom is private as both rooms are only booked together if family or friends and you need beds for more than 2 people.

Bedroom 1 has a king size bed, triple wardrobe and chest of drawers. Bedroom 2 has 2 single beds, a single wardrobe, and a chest of drawers. Both rooms have kettles and tea/ coffee, and a TV, plus bookcases of books. There is an iron and small ironing board, hairdryer and radio clock. An extra fold up single bed, chair bed or mattress can be provided for each room so the accommodation can sleep up to 6 people. We can also provide a cot. There is an extra charge per person for more than 2 people per room.

Cleaning of rooms is not included. All rooms are cleaned prior to arrival. Should you required additional cleaning this can be arranged for an additional fee.


One hand towel and bath towel are provided per person and for longer term stays towels and bedding linen are changed weekly.

The property is situated between Honiton and Axminster, and close to the villages of Dalwood, Stockland, Kilmington and Wilmington - within easy reach from the A30. It thus offers a convenient base for exploring a range of activities and places of interest in the south west. East Devon is famous for its Jurassic coast. Seaton, which is situated at the mouth of the River Axe(and is only 30 minutes away) also has a scenic golf course and a yacht club.

Places of interest – Durdle Door in the Dorset section of the Jurassic coast; the famous Eden project( only 2 hours away) Taunton,(the town was first settled in Saxon times – approx. 700AD) Dunster and Tiverton castles, Exeter cathedral. For something more energetic, there are a number of activities - like the ‘Landrover experience” and quad biking near Cullompton, Zorbing in Dorchester and water sports in Exmouth(and a sandy beach and model railway!) and centres offering child activities eg. Crealy adventure Park (said to be “a cross between Disneyland and MacDonald’s farm”, and Abbotsbury which provides a farm, gardens(which are lit up at Halloween and Christmas) and a Swanery, and Paintballing near Exeter. Then for those rainy days – there is the Fleet Air Museum and the Haynes Motor Museum in Yeovil and the historic Observatory in Sidmouth (also famous for it’s annual Folk Festival in July) and the Aquarium in Weymouth(URL HIDDEN) Larger Shopping centers – Exeter, Yeovil and Taunton and the Trago center.

I am a 'country lass' - grew up on a farm in Africa so enjoy open spaces and the beautiful countryside of Devon. We have 2 sons, 2 dogs, and 1 cat. I try to make the cottages welcoming, comfortable and homely.
